Thursday’s Thirteen


13 Things about Darren


Deeder’s daddy was born May 18th, 1968.

As a boy he wanted to be veterinarian.

He loves to drive. His first vehicle was a pickup truck that his dad bought for him. Darren’s very fond of telling the story–he was 14.

As a kid, Daddy loved dogs, just like Deeder. His room was full of stuffed dogs, dog figurines and plastered with dog posters. He got his first puppy 14 years ago from a farmer in North Dakota.

When we want to eat out but aren’t sure where to go, we often end up at Pizza Hut. Daddy says it brings back memories from home.

Photography is Daddy’s official hobby. I think he has three film using cameras that sit up in his office, nearly aniques by today’s digital world. He owns the Nikon D200 which is a digital and so stoked with amazing capabilities that he feels that he hardly has a grasp yet for what it can do.

He enjoys cooking, and will even give “clean up” a go! Knoephla is one of his favorites.

Daddy loves to sing! Mommy is impressed by how many 70’s and 80’s things he has deeply ingrained in his music soul. She can’t help but laugh since they’re all so before her time! hehe.

Daddy isn’t a morning person. But he lets Deeder jump on his head in the way too wee hours of the morning!

At work Daddy is a psychiatric nurse.

Daddy doesn’t plan to blog for Mommy when she’s down and out. Uncertain future for Blog 365.

Deeder’s daddy was a farmer once. He hopes that someday we can have a hobby farm, so that the kids will “learn to work.”

Most of all, Darren loves God. He says that what’s really important is that we live near a good church so that Carly and Deeder can grow up with Christian friends and know that there are other people who love the Lord. I think he’s right and I’m thankful that having that is a priority for him!


thanks, Cadet, for the pictures!
